Con artist calling

A lady calling people with a very convincing story. She says she has a collect call from someone you know (mentions name) and says your phone doesn’t accept collect calls so she needs your credit card number.

If you do not give her the cc number she says “oh they just hung up” and she hangs up. This is the number she is calling from beware 780-420-9224!!!

    • This! I think in this day and age collect calls aren’t common, but I could 100% see my grandma falling for it, especially if the lady used the name of her grandkids

    As a former Telus operator, I just want everyone to know that the operator will identify them selves.

    Hi this is the Telus operator, I have a collect call from xxxxxxx, Will you except the charges?

    Everyone needs to know that we cannot bill third-party. Or we used to not be able to you when I worked there. Charges would appear on your phone statement.

    It’s important to understand that you never give your credit card information out to anybody for any reason.

  5. What with people being rude? The poster obviously is just spreading the word of some low life scammer that tried to scam them. Go troll on something else.
